Always been into my vauxhalls but only recently have I purchased my first astra!
First car was a vauxhall nova but unfotunately that didnt last long so after a few snotters I got myself a corsa GSI which over a period of time I rebuild with a full respray and a c20xe engine:
Learnt a lot doing this project and kept it for a while but with a new job I needed something a "bit" more practical so did a PX with a Vectra GSI msd which was low mileage and pretty tidy.
Had a lot of fun in this car and tbh I really regret getting rid of it, even went to Snowdonia and did the evo triangle:
After I while I decided to part directions with Vauxhalls and had some fun with BMW's / Imprezas but afetr getting bored with them I decided the only cars I really ever enjoyed driving and working on was vauxhalls I decided to look at my options.
I did some quotes on Vectras again but then stumblet on the z20let coupes. I had always liked the shape and these were suprisingly reasonable to insure!
I had a look at a few close by but they werent great bodywise or had high mileage so I bit the bullet and increased my budget slightly and found one I liked on pistonheads.
After going all the way up to Leicester to see it (luckily it was as good as the previous owner described ) I paid my cash and drove it back:
I love it so far, pulls like a train and I love how it looks. Have had to do a few small bits (wheel bearing, coil pack, spark plugs) but other than that its great!
Anyway sorry for the long write up, hope to see some of you about and I hope you like the car!
